WCC Women’s Book Study

Beginning Sunday evening, June 5th at 6 pm (this is the Sunday after Memorial Day), we will be offering a women’s book study on, Good Enough by Kate Bowler and Jessica Richie.  This will be held at the church.  Here’s a comment from one of the reviews:  “With humor and wit, Good Enough guides us into a spirituality that is at once rich and humble, challenging us to search for beauty and meaning in deep waters, yet never asking more of us than a tender and compassionate God would.”

Fourth Sunday

Beginning this month, our 4th Sunday will be a new type of service — a variety of music and more participation from all of you.  We are calling this “Something More.”  And once again, we will continue to include our small people upstairs during our Worship time.
